EVENT ADVISORY: Mayors of Seattle and Richmond Discuss Building Power for Working People
Washington, D.C. — One of the great challenges America faces is how to ensure that the economy benefits most workers. Over recent decades, workers have lost power and received a smaller share of economic growth as too many workers struggle to afford even basic living costs. To meet these challenges, progressive mayors across the country are advancing policies to raise pay, increase benefits, and build power for their residents.
Please join us at the Center for American Progress Action Fund for a conversation with two mayors whose cities are serving as leading laboratories for pro-worker innovations. Mayors Jenny Durkan of Seattle and Levar Stoney of Richmond, Virginia, will discuss pathways for cities to raise standards and build power for working people, as well as ways that their cities can provide a roadmap for creating pro-worker state and federal reforms.
